BBI JU opens Call for additional members of the Scientific Committee

03 December 2016


The BBI JU is organising an open Call to appoint additional Scientific Committee members with expertise in one or more areas relevant to the work of the BBI JU. We are looking for highly skilled, open-minded and independent experts with an innovative vision for the bio-based industries in Europe.

The Scientific Committee is an advisory body of the Bio-Based Industries Joint Undertaking. It will mainly advise on the scientific priorities to be addressed in the annual work plans, as well as on the scientific achievements described in the annual activity report.

The BBI JU is looking for additional members to join this key advisory body so that membership reflects a balanced representation of worldwide recognised experts from academia, industry, SMEs, non-governmental organisations and regulatory bodies. Specifically, the Scientific Committee members need to have the necessary scientific competencies and expertise covering the technical domains needed to make science-based recommendations to the BBI JU, and the constitution of this body must reflect regional and gender balances to the extent where possible. The Scientific Committee has a chairperson and two vice-chairpersons who are elected from among its members.

More information and full details about the eligibility, application and selection procedures can be found here.

New deadline for submission of expression of interest: 31st January 2017 at 12.00 (noon) CET.
